Second time at this marina; first time in my boat. Friendly staff helped me dock in a slip relatively close to land. This marina is very close to downtown New Bern, which is a wonderful stop just off the Great Loop. There are quite a few liveaboards at this marina and all were very friendly. The docks are secured with a combination lock. I felt very safe.

Some noise in late afternoon from gulls gathering along the railroad bridge adjacent to the marina. They were quiet after sunset. The train seems to come by in the morning, very slowly.

My only gripe about this marina is the distance from the boat dock to the restrooms and laundry facilities -- it's at least two city blocks!

Pet friendly. There is a grassy area right outside the dock gate. A sign was erected during my stay: "Dogs must be leashed."

I would stay here again and recommend it, but mostly for its proximity to downtown New Bern.

The New Bern Grand Marina Yacht Club has been one of our very favorite stops! The proximity to town is unbeatable! We loved being able to step off our boat and be in the heart of New Bern's charming downtown area. There were so many things for our kids to do and explore in the area.

The marina itself is in a rebuilding state from a recent hurricane. The office is housed in a temporary building that is about a block away from the docks. They do have bathrooms and laundry, but the pool is still closed.

The transient dock is brand new and extremely nice. We docked on the far side and struggled to get the marina wifi. My advice would be to try to dock closer to the gate at the end. You will have a shorter walk with laundry and closer proximity to wifi.

The staff is very friendly at New Bern Grand Marina Yacht Club and they offered our family several suggestions on restaurants. We will definitely return!

Post-Hurricane Florence, we are happy to see that the NB Grand is still as good as ever. The new G-dock is set to open soon, so more transient space will be available by the spring. The hotel is still closed, but renovations are ongoing and the property has been maintained. The marina restrooms and showers are now located at the sales office at the corner of Front and Craven Sts. Ask around for the current best restaurant choices and current boater favorites.

Rhythm Sail 38 ft 5.0 ft

We weren't sure what to expect here but we loved it so much we stayed for two months. New Bern is like something out of a Hallmark movie and the marina is right in the middle of it making everything within walking distance. The staff is second to none. We arrived post Hurricane Florence so the restrooms/laundry etc.. weren't functional but we were told it would all be up and running in April 2019. They have recovered remarkably well and offered free dockside pump outs so we were fine with the accommodation. Local hardware store- 2 blocks, natural food store- 4 blocks, many restaurants and bars and a wonderful community filled with southern hospitality. Well worth the trip up the Neuse River!

What a great value, we paid $4 foot a week. Great little town with lovely waterfront. Docks need a bit of work but the town makes up for it.

Odonata Sail 40 ft 5.0 ft

Awesome marina. The most beautiful setting you can imagine as the marina is part of the Doubletree Hotel campus. Gated docks. Great shower facilities and a very short walking distance to more than 20 restaurants plus lots of shopping and entertainment in historic downtown New Bern, across the street from the marina. The staff is second to none. A very friendly and beautiful environment and a great place to live or keep your boat. We liked it so much, we are liveaboards here.
